Life certificate

The annual procedure for the AHV/IV life certificate has changed as of 1 January 2022.  The certificate of proof of life and marital status will no longer be sent to all insured persons. The Swiss Compensation Office (CFC) and Disability Insurance (SI) will inform those insured persons who do not have to submit these certificates in writing by post. You will receive the information letter one month before the month in which you would normally receive the certificate of life and marital status form. For further information, please write to sedmaster@zas.admin.ch
